    GOOD luck. Why did you pic 1.66? It's pretty buggy. Maybe should have gone down to .71 or .73

    Anyways let us know how it works!

    I had 1.66 before and really didn't have many problems with it. I have the hourglass now, getting close.

    Sweet man, maybe just a bad install of the newer OS. It happens sometimes. Glad everything is up and running. Remember Backup is your friend!

    If your screen is flickers and slowly fades to white it almost always means that there is damage to the screen connections. On the plus side, when it's not physical damage it's because the video driver in the software has stopped responding. If it happens again, especially on other OS's, you'll want to have it looked at for repair.

    Re: Help! Pearl screen is white!

    The same issue happened to my pearl last week while out of town. It had worked fine for 3 weeks and then one day it started giving wierd displays on the screen and then it went completely white. I tried all the usual tricks to get it to come back and thought I had it fixed. I put it back in the case and wham... the next time out of the holster... white screen again. I ended up taking it back to the retail store and was told that there havent been enough cases of this issue yet to pinpoint an exact cause but they are leaning toward the magnet in the holster causing issues to the inside workings of the pearl. Their advice to me was to never put it in a holster again.

    Like thats really gonna happen...

    Let me know if you get any resolution to the issue. I would be very interested to hear what you did for a fix.

    I resolved the issue by purchasing another pearl. I also carried the phone in a holster. I tried reloading every OS available with no luck. Looks like I have spare parts now.

    Mine does the same thing and I do not use a holster.

    I took mine apart to see if there was anything obviously wrong with it but I didn't find anything.

    After I did that though my screen came on but then it started bugging out right away

    this is happening to me too

    I luckly had the phone for less than 30 days. But a battery pull works as well as hooking it up to your computer and when the dialog comes up about being a storage device it should come back. I am returning mine tomorrow with 6 days left on my month return policy. Problem is I dont have the packing slip because my rebate asked for the original packing slip in order to process it. Sprint told me to have the store call if they didnt believe me. I will let you know how it goes.
